    Loved the Persuaders. Sometimes (not presently) they have them on ITV 4, best part of 40 years on Curtis's Dino still looks good

    He was always entertaining when interviewed.

    Died aged 85 but lived more life than most would get in 2 life times.
    It gos without saying there will be a film or 2 of his shown in the next few weeks, got to be the Vikings.

    When I first saw him doing the millionaire complete with Cary Grant accent in Some like it hot, it was one of he funniest things I've ever seen.

    Curtis: what a lovely shell. We named the company after it.

    Marilyn Monroe: You don't mean -

    Curtis: Please. No names....

    RIP

    What a guy....

    Curtis finally sets the record straight regarding the well-trafficked quote that kissing Marilyn Monroe was like kissing Hitler: "After the scene on the yacht, some of the crew and I stood around to watch the rushes, and afterwards they wanted to know what it was like to kiss her. I figured a question that stupid deserved a stupid answer, so I flippantly responded by saying, 'Kissing Marilyn is like kissing Hitler.' I was right—it was a stupid answer. What I should have said was 'What do you think kissing her is like, birdbrain?' Or I could have had the good sense to just say nothing. But my thoughtless comment became public knowledge, and the story still makes the rounds. So let me set the record straight once and for all: I hated Hitler. As a Jewish kid in New York, I threw condom bombs on pro-Nazi parades. I loved Marilyn Monroe. And she was a terrific kisser."

    yes. I just heard Sir Roger Moore playing tribute to him. He said he's just come back from Sweden where he was forever signing box sets. RIP
